Public Welfare vs Private Charity: Some Lessons from Medieval and Early Modern Europe Other events...
In this talk, Sharon Farmer, Professor of History at University of California Santa Barbara will use examples from Medieval and Early Modern Europe to challenge the major tenet of twenty-first century conservatism that, when it comes to taking care of those who cannot take provide for themselves, societies that rely on systems of private charity are far superior to those that rely on government sponsored systems of social welfare.

This lecture is presented by the Institute of Advanced Studies and the Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Studies at The University of Western Australia.
